<p>(WATCH LIVE) By a 15-4 vote by the Jacksonville City Council restored the cities LGBTQ non-discrimination protections after a Florida appeals court struck it down due to a legislative technicality in May. Mayor Lenny Curry has signaled that he will sign the ordinance. It will go into effect as soon as it reaches his desk. Soon after the city amended its human rights ordinance in 2017 to include sexual orientation and gender identity in its 28 sections prohibiting discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations, the Liberty Counsel, an anti-LGBTQ hate group that regularly challenges the expansion of LGBTQ civil rights, filed a civil suit seeking to overturn the ordinance. Now that the Jacksonville City Council has essentially re-passed the same ordinance, it remains to be seen whether The Liberty Counsel will try and overturn it again. This time the council made sure to follow all the technicalities required by law.</p>
